Chess is a two-player board game played on a chessboard, a square-checkered board with 64 squares arranged in an eight-by-eight grid. It is one of the world's most popular games, played by millions of people worldwide at home, in clubs, online, by correspondence, and in tournaments. Each player begins the game with sixteen pieces: one king, one queen, two rooks, two knights, two bishops, and eight pawns, each of these types of pieces moving differently. Pieces are used to attack and capture the opponent's pieces. The object of the game is to 'checkmate' the opponent's king by placing it under an inescapable threat of capture. In addition to checkmate, the game can be won by the voluntary resignation of one's opponent, which may occur when too much material is lost, or if checkmate appears unavoidable. A game may also result in a draw in several ways, where neither player wins. The course of the game is divided in three phases. The beginning of the game is called the opening (with the development of pieces). The opening yields to the phase called the middlegame. The last phase is the endgame, generally characterized by the disappearance of queens. The first official World Chess Champion, Wilhelm Steinitz, claimed his title in 1886; the current World Champion is Viswanathan Anand. In addition to the World Championship, there are the Women's World Championship, the Junior World Championship, the World Senior Championship, the Correspondence Chess World Championship, the World Computer Chess Championship, and Blitz and Rapid World Championships. The Chess Olympiad is a popular competition among teams from different nations. Online chess has opened amateur and professional competition to a wide and varied group of players. Chess is a recognized sport of the International Olympic Committee, and international chess competition is sanctioned by the FIDE (Fédération Internationale des Échecs or World Chess Federation). There are also many chess variants that have different rules, different pieces, and different boards. Commencing in the second half of the 20th century, computers have been programmed to play chess with increasing success to the point where home computers can play chess at a very high level. In the past two decades computer analysis has contributed significantly to chess theory as understood by human players, particularly in the endgame. The computer program Deep Blue was the first machine player to overcome a reigning World Chess Champion when it defeated Garry Kasparov in 1997.

Chess Rules and General Chess Instructions
A pawn can only move forward. During its first move, it can choose to move 1 or 2 squares forward, given that both squares are unoccupied. After that it can move 1 square forward vertically to an empty square, or move 1 square forward diagonally to capture the opponent piece on that square. When an opponent's pawn makes its first move by taking 2 squares forward and it lands on a horizontally or vertically adjacent square with your pawn, you can capture that pawn immediately by moving your pawn 1 square forward diagonally. This move is called en passant. If your pawn can reach the farthest row on your opponents side, it will be promoted and transformed into a queen, a rook, a bishop or a knight of your choice. A rook can move and capture horizontally or vertically for any distance. A knight can move and capture by moving 2 squares horizontally and then 1 square vertically, or 2 squares vertically and then 1 square horizontally. It can leap over other pieces along its moving path and reach the destination. A bishop can move and capture diagonally for any distance. The queen can move and capture horizontally, vertically or diagonally for any distance. The king can move and capture 1 square in any direction. Once in every game, the king can perform a special move called castling, which also involves a rook. To make this move, the following conditions must hold: no pieces are left between the rook and the king; both pieces involved in castling have not been moved; the king is not in check; and the squares through which the king passes and the destination are not under attack. If these conditions hold, the king can move 2 squares toward the rook, and the rook can move to the last square which the king has just passed. When you move a piece to attack the opponent's king and it will be captured in your next move, the opponent's king is said to be in check. The opponent must respond by making a move so that the king is no longer under attack. If no legal ways are available for your opponent to remove the king from attack, a checkmate occurs and you win the game. If you make a move and then the opponent cannot make any legal moves, a stalemate occurs and the game will end in a draw. You may also declare a draw game by clicking the corresponding button on the left of the screen, and if your opponent agrees, the game ends. Come and meet chess masters around the world now!
